Self-Driving Snow Removal Robots

The SnowBot PRO Promises Advanced Winter Maintenance Capabilities

— February 24, 2019 — Autos
Clearing snow often takes extended periods and can be backbreaking, so the SnowBot PRO has been developed by Left Hand Robotics to help bring an automated experience to the process. Connecting to the web for real-time monitoring from anywhere, the system can be used for autonomously clearing areas of snow in far less time than what's possible with human workers. The vehicle also snaps before-and-after photos of the work that it does to let administrators keep an eye on things without having to do any manual inspecting after the job is done.

The SnowBot PRO from Left Hand Robotics is priced at $35,995 and will come as welcome news to business owners seeking to streamline snow removal.
